Recipe: Greek Gyro Burger


Happy #NationalGyroDay! There's no time like the present to share a #150BunsofSummer recipe that puts a little twist on the classic Greek gyro sandwich. Imagine yourself in line for a sweet, sweet gyro pita and then top this juicy burger as such. We have a suggested list below in the ingredients (with cucumber, red onion, arugula, etc.), but feel free to stray off course and/or give your guests an abundance of toppings.

Also, don't sleep on these feta fries!!! They are to die for side dish, and the feta topping could just as easily go on sweet potato fries, over a salad, directly on a burger, the options are endless!
